MAC Address from host DB machine.
Is there a way to get some kind of ID of the MySQL Instance?
Would be good to get MAC Address from PC hosting the DB, for example.
How can I do that?

Interesting question. As far as I know, there is not a function to retreive any kind of address of the server. But you can generate a UUID() and store it in an on-disk table. In practice, it's impossible that another server generates an identical UUID().
